Juventus scramble as Everton lodge Witsel bid

Juventus are battling Everton in the race to land Zenit St Petersburg midfielder Axel Witsel.

Juve see the Belgian as the ideal replacement for the Manchester United-bound Paul Pogba.

Everton have stolen a march, however, having lodged a €30 million offer for Witsel over the weekend.

Juve hope to make a counter offer this week – once the Pogba deal goes through.

As an alternative, the Bianconeri are eyeing Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic.
